Aoibhín Ryan

FOLM project co-ordinator

Aoibhín has a keen passion for the outdoors. She graduated with a Master of Science in Outdoor Education from the University of Edinburgh in July 2019. Her research was based on how outdoor education and the Irish language can help develop a stronger relationship to place.

Aoibhín is passionate about promoting outdoor education and is keen to emphasise that it's a great way for young people to explore both themselves and learning to care for the environment around them.

Aoibhín has qualifications in various outdoor disciplines; as a mountain leader, rock climbing instructor, windsurfing instructor, stand up paddle board instructor. She also has an array of personal skills in kayaking, surfing, and coasteering. She is happiest when on a mountain or in the ocean!
